Cleaning, Preserving, and Caring for Your Wedding Gown
Believe it or not, caring for your wedding gown actually begins before you even purchase it. Today’s gowns can be made from a variety of fabrics including satin, taffeta, chiffon, organza, brocade, and lace. Plus, many gowns are accented with delicate trims of beads, seed pearls, sequins, embroidery, lace, and applique. As you begin searching, you’ll need to consider practical issues before making your purchase; be sure to ask the salesperson about cleaning methods for both the dress and the trim.
